    It wouldn't be so bad if 'chasing trophies' was their sole motivation but they ain't won any Have they.? They should be honest and say I want the money �� Because that's what they've got, shed loads of it and not a little bit of silver wear to be seen.Hypocritical bastards the lot of them.

    I watched the match in Spain. Seems quite likely he'll leave. The coverage here though is all about Ronaldo's future.

    Priceless. Utterly priceless. And that it was Bale who delivered the hammer blow was merely the icing on the cake.

    What Gareth Bale has done is to ensure that we will forever have a decent retaliatory chant against the dippers....regardless of the score in future games, we can p*ss them off until the end of time. Season ticket renewal worth it for this alone.

    You’re looking for a standard among supporters that is simply not available anywhere in this sport. Players leave clubs at all levels. Some behave reprehensibly when they agitate for a move. The supporters give it back to them at any opportunity. They deserve it. There are similar attitudes up and down the food chain. Liverpool supporters are the same way with Stirling. It’s part of football at every level, not just Southampton’s.

    Most Saints supporters have been pretty decent with departees like Ox, and Walcott.

    so pleased that I didn't have to witness LOLvren, van **** and nivea boy holding that trophy great aloft. If Salah hadn't got injured I'd of fancied them to win, but such is life. Noticeable how much of a non entity Henderson was, and he will be running our central midfield this summer at the WC. Gulp.

    Michael Eisner's just tweeted that Bale's goal was made on the south coast of England. Hahaha.

    Van Dijk £75m

    Lallana £20m
    Clyde £12m
    Lovren in tears (again) - priceless!!

    As for Lineker almost suggesting Ramos was laughing at Salah going off injured, thought that was disgraceful. There was me thinking presenters were at least meant to pretend to be impartial, was he the linesman or something, could have sworn he was in the studio.

    Not a fan of Jordan Henderson but fair play, he spoke well afterwards. At least one person connected with Liverpool showing a bit of humility.

    That's what it might look like from Califronia, but the reality is very much different. "If the Saints were better, no one would leave" - if you seriously believe that, then you have little idea of how things work.

    Lloyd Isgrove has still got more winners’ medals than Adam Lallana. I have absolutely no sympathy for English football’s most disgusting club. Well done Real Madrid.

    What's this I hear? It must be the sound of the world's smallest violin. Damn, my mistake, it's Gerrard's *$%£ing annoying voice.

    'Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard speaking on BT Sport: "Out of the six [final defeats] this will be Jurgen Klopp's toughest - just the way it's happened. He's done everything right, the manager.

    "He's prepared his team well throughout the campaign and he set them up well tonight. Tactically they were very good, they looked dangerous, they were full of energy and he loses his best player who has been phenomenal all season.

    "That goes against them and for the keeper to make the two mistakes that he did - everything went against Liverpool that could."'

    That's Van Dyke but as far as I recall he is the only player who forced a sale with years left on his contract. Others were sold when contracts were running down and the player was refusing to sign an extension. Right to free angry over the way Van Dyke behaved but it showed that no club can make a player perform to his best if he doesn't want to. FIFA's best intentions over Financial Fair Play haven't achieved a level playing field because the small group of clubs with worldwide commercial revenues are permitted to spend much more on transfers and pay massively higher wages than those in the middle of the pyramid or lower down.

    You don't recollect terribly well. Lallana left a year after signing a five year deal. Lovren a year after signing a four year deal. Both forced their way out.

    And were Lollana and Van **** were still club captains when they were agitating for moves. Lollana said it was after we'd played them in Feb(?) earlier that year that he knew that's where he wanted to be, and was seen signing LFC shirts at World Cup before talks had "officially" started. Illegal approach to Van **** is well documented, but remember how Reed was confident that Clyne would be signing an extension ... he obviously didn't know how much had probably been going on behind the scenes without SFC's consent given their track record. Mane, I can forgive after the rough ride he was given in his 1st year with us. Lolvren with his head is already there crap ... had we given him permission to talk to them beforehand ... probably not.

    No pity, no respect. End of.

    Move over Mo Salah, Liverpool have signed No Salad!

    I watched the final, despite the intention not to, and it was well worth watching - the tears, the screw ups, and then the utterly sublime from Bale. Born in Wales, made in Southampton. Awesome. Oh, and while I hate Liverpool, I hope Mo Salah is back for the World Cup. I plan on watching every game (that my newborn baby will allow) and he's worth watching.

    Oh, and Liverpool's best player was Mane. Surely bigger clubs are looking at him...

    Funny. Got the Skates all excited.

    But .... sad state of affairs when foreign owners come in and are completely clueless about the English game. They might know about soccer but not the English game.

    Real's first goal clearly was legal but I wonder if it would have been allowed at the other end? Think the Spaniards would have had a meltdown.

    Great night and good day of sport overall. Pleased for Targett first of all at Wembley, probably joining Fulham now and might suit all parties. Then stunning appearance from Bale and unless Liverpool sign him (doubt it, I think a keeper and DMs will be their priority!) he’s given his first club great ammunition for whenever we play the victims. Was pleased for Mane too, no issues with him and might be a player Barca or PSG now target.

    Like most others, was delighted to see Lovren, Lallana and worst of all VVD get nowt. Unnecessary the way all three left, aided and abetted by Liverpool and their agents. VVD is going to have a seriously uncomfortable afternoon next season as Saints regenerate and have shaken off MP’s legacy, although I do thank Puel for the semi final victory over them.

    Lallana looked well off the pace and can see him being loaned off to Wolves or West Ham.

    Finally, Eisner’s tweet put a further bonus crown on the evening!

    If I was being cynical I would say that is just Ronaldo trying to grab some of the limelight after being overshadowed in the match. He was clearly DESPERATE to score.

    I flew 9 Liverpool supporters over to Kiev. They were very confident and said it was their year. Had no sympathy when I told them I wan a Saints fan and said it’s the way it is with transfers and tapping up. Lots of drinking, bugging themselves up and reminiscing about the past.


    I wished them well well as they left and said good luck and I hope it’s an ex Saints player that scores the winner. So into themselves they thought I meant for them and said ‘arrrr thanks mate’

    They got what I meant when I picked them up. Very quiet flight back!

    If they were chasing trophies they wouldn't have gone to Liverpool.

    They haven't won the league for 28 years and to be honest they are not even regular top 4 candidates, in the last 10 years they have finished outside the top four 6 times, outside the top 6 on four of those occasions.

    They have won just ONE trophy in the last 12 years and that was a League Cup against Championship Cardiff.

    They went for money pure and simple, they moved from a team that was challenging for the top 6-8 and looking to move up, to a team that challenges for the top 4-6 most seasons. It's a step up, but hardly a big one and several of left without zero good grace or thanks for the club that made them into the players they are to get that big pay raise, they instead threw tantrums and forced through their moves.

    They're really going for it with the Ramos stuff. Absolute desperation and need for someone to blame. They'll run with this for years now, the time Ramos cheated them of a CL win.

    Reality, two men fall over and one suffers freak injury. Looked like when Austin did his arm, just one of those things.

    Yes Ramos is a dirty defender, but he's also a fcking good one. Carragher was fcking dirty player too and they loved that. There's no way he meant to injure him but don't doubt he had intentions to let Salah know it'd be a tough physical game, as you'd want from your defender. There's a reason he's won everything in football.

    He tried to get Manť in trouble going down as if he had been elbowed to the face when Manť barely touched him and proceeded to put an elbow in Karius face. He could have easily released Salah's arm when he was rolling. There were plenty of other incidents. I get it you have to dislike liverpool and follow the herd but try being objective when you do it pal.
